Picked up an S100 on Friday and so far love it but have 2 gripes and wondering if this is just something about the camera or if I have a defective unit.
1.camera really struggles to focus in low light more so than my ixus.
2.The lcd screen is too saturated and has just too much contrast.makes using the screen very unreliable especially against my pc monitor ,which is calibrated with an eye one.
I love the camera but am disappointed considering that this is a high end compact and expect that the screen to be calibrated or close enough.
I have an s95, not the s100 but close enough.
Low light focusing can be a problem, especially in low contrast situations. If you really think its a problem, do a side by side comparison with your ixus, I'm guessing you've only done a comparison in your mind. If its still worse, email or call canon support and ask them about it.
As for the screen, on the s95 at least, the screen does make the images look much more colourful and brighter than on the monitor. Turn the brightness down a notch and it helps a bit.

what's an s100 more info not everyone knows
Since we're in the "small compact digitals by canon" forum, its not that hard to fathom what camera he's talking about. Do you also have a problem with the "s100 photo thread"?
